Audit & Assurance

Audit & Assurance

A professionally conducted audit is a means of maintaining the credibility of an organisation, whether it be a business, charitable company such as an Academy or other regulated entities, and is a vital control tool and ensures compliance with all relevant legislation.

Together, audit and other assurance services play a fundamental role in the successful management of an organisation. We establish effective working relationships based on mutual trust and respect, with key players within a company, including management, non-executive directors and other advisers.

Our clients benefit from a partner-led client approach supported by appropriately qualified and experienced staff.

Internal Audit and Systems Assurance

We can review all or certain aspects of the systems and internal controls that your organisation has in place, assess their effectiveness, present recommendations and assist with implementing any agreed improvements.  Such reviews can be incorporated into the year-end audits or performed at interim stages during the year.

Specialist Audit

In addition to conducting audit and assurance work for limited companies we also have specialist knowledge in the following regulated entities:

  • Solicitors
  • Charities (including Academies)
  • Industrial and Provident Societies
  • Friendly Societies
  • Pension Schemes
  • FSA registered firms
  • FRICS registered firms

Our audit clients benefit from:

1. A robust and challenging approach to audit. We do not shy away from face-to-face discussion and challenge on key audit issues and we have all the technical processes and procedures clients would expect.

2. A partner-led client service. We do not make a habit of changing your WNJ team once you have engaged us – it is the norm for the partner who starts working with you to stay with you as long as current rotation rules allow.
